Private jet charter to Coachella 2018
The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival – or Coachella, as it’s more commonly known – returns to the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California this April. This year marks the 19th anniversary of the annual two-weekend festival, which covers several stages, dancefloors and outdoor theatres. This year’s headliners include A-Listers The Weeknd, Beyonce and Eminem, making Coachella one of 2018’s most hotly-anticipated music festivals.
Around 250,000 people flock to Coachella each year, where they’re treated to live performances from some of the world’s greatest acts. Past headline performers include Radiohead, Rihanna, Coldplay, Kanye West and Lady Gaga. This year’s revamped line-up features world-famous pop stars; alternative icons such as HAIM, Oh Sees and Fleet Foxes; and hip-hop heroes including Tyler, the Creator and Vince Staples. You can see the full lineup on Coachella’s website.
Music, sun and fun
In addition to the world-class music, Coachella presents a range of exhilarating original, large-scale art installations. Organizers search for established and up-and-coming artists to showcase their art in Coachella’s public spaces. Past installations include a giant snail (2013), an astronaut (2014) and a caterpillar that morphed into a butterfly (2017). After a day of world-class music and art, you can satisfy your taste buds at one of the festival’s 100+ food vendors – enjoy homemade wood-fired pizza, vegetarian and vegan options, plus refreshments like cocktails and beer on tap at The Craft Beer Barn. Whatever your foodie cravings, Coachella has you covered.
This star-studded music bash attracts as many celebrities as it does music enthusiasts, so expect to rub shoulders with the rich and famous while you’re rocking out. Guests at 2017’s Coachella included supermodels Alessandra Ambrosio, Kendall Jenner and Jasmine Tookes, actors Emma Roberts and Cole Sprouse, singers Hailee Steinfeld and Katy Perry, fashion designer Jeremy Scott and reality star and make-up mogul Kylie Jenner.

Coachella is one of the world’s most popular music festivals, so tickets sell out seconds after being released. However, tickets can still be purchased through Stubhub and other resellers. General admission passes, which include parking and three-day entry to the festival, are selling for approximately $545 each.
After securing your ticket, the next step is to arrange your accommodation. If you’re a lover of the great outdoors, then you’ll love camping at one of Coachella’s campsites, where fully-furnished safari tents allow guests to retire in luxury. Alternatively, Coachella is 30 miles from the idyllic Palm Springs, so if you’d prefer some privacy, consider booking a hotel or renting a villa. Find your perfect accommodation through Coachella’s official partner Curadora.
If you’re planning to enjoy the Coachella VIP experience, it makes sense to start your trip in fitting style. Book a private jet with Air Charter Service to either Jacqueline Cochran Regional Airport or Bermuda Dunes Airport, both located just over seven miles from festival’s venue.
